Wooden Sign Design

 

Our instructor will guide you through the process of creating your own custom wooden sign in this 2 ½ hour class. From sanding and staining to stenciling and painting, you will learn to work with natural wood grains, knots and textures. You will leave with a piece of art that is one of a kind.

Even if you have never lifted a paintbrush, not to mention woodworking tools, this class is for beginners or expert artisans alike. Our designer will make stencils that allow you to customize your sign with your family name, children’s names, monogram, or special dates in your life. You will also have the opportunity to choose paint colors and wood stain that best coordinate with your style and taste.
